DEPARTMENT MAINTAINS INSPECTORS
       The Department of Agriculture, under the direction of the Dairy and Cold Storage Branch, maintains inspectors at the railway terminals at Montreal, Toronto and Halifax, for the purpose of examining refrigerator cars as they arrive with butter, reporting the quantity of ice in the bunkers, the sanitary condition of the car, whether the packages are properly stowed or otherwise, number of packages and weight and the temperature of the butter as determined by actual tests with a thermometer. Daily reports are made to the Markets' Division, Ottawa, and any defect in the service is brought immediately to the attention of the railway company. The special refrigerator car service for butter, which is arranged by the Dairy and Cold Storage Branch, was in operation this year from May 12 to October 4, inclusive, and during that time the Montreal inspectors reported on 1,040 cars containing 290,491 pkgs. (18,800,825 lbs.) of butter.
